Water Tanks – Moree
Moree is a major agricultural centre, noted for its part in the Australian cotton-growing industry which was established there in the early 1960s. The first cotton plant in Moree was from a farm called Wilga. It was grown by Bill and Betty Lynch. The town is located at the junction of the Newell Highway and Gwydir Highway and can be reached by daily train and air services from Sydney. It is situated in the Moree Plains Shire. Like many towns and cities in Australia, Moree shares its name with a much smaller community in Northern Ireland in County Tyrone. At the 2011 census, Moree had a population of 9,346, which was an increase from 8,083 in 2006.
Situated atop some of the world’s richest black alluvial soils, the Moree Plains Shire has long been renowned as the hub of the Northern Wheatbelt commonly referred to quite aptly as the Golden Wheatbelt. The continuation of drought throughout the 90’s led to a broadening diversity in farming practices and crop choices with the Moree Plains Shire now proudly boasting success in harvesting sunflowers, mungbeans and olives in addition to traditionally planted crops. Moree is also home to artesian hot spring baths which are famous for their reputed healing qualities.
